Documentation of an installation from 2004, preserved in the Rhizome Artbase. "The Instant Memorial is capable of commemorating an infinite number of tragic events that have yet to take place. Feel free to let it run in the background as you go about your business, and be ready (if the opportunity should present itself) to exploit the tragedies it generates to advance the political goals of your choice."

Interregnum is based on the extraordinary career of René Carmille, history's first known computer hacker. The government of Nazi-occupied France launched a ghastly and unprecedented experiment in information science: much of the Vichy bureaucracy, including the operation of the death camps, was automated with punch-card computers. However, the Nazis didn't understand the technology's potential vulnerabilities...

Have you ever looked at a sentence until it stopped making sense? For this short, I took a bit from a little-known Lewis Carroll poem, and repeated it until it lost any kind of meaning.

The letters used in this short fell off a movie theater marquee one Sunday afternoon in the fall of 1998. Theyâd originally been part of some grand, meaningful words, but now they were stranded and helpless. So I gave them a new home.

In this adaptation of an early Kafka story, a soldier is taken prisoner in the night by a pack of jackals. Offering a pair of scissors, they demand that he use the makeshift weapon to kill his sleeping friends. They overwhelm his initial, shocked refusal. Slowly, incredibly, he begins to see their point of view. He takes the scissors, and...

I’d seen pictures of it before, but an especially dramatic photograph caught my eye on a magazine cover in the grocery store. It almost looked like another vegetable: a brilliant marigold-orange “fuel-air” bomb, the most powerful non-nuclear weapon on the market.

This is a story about a little bird who claims to be able to predict the future. Don’t trust him. The Little Bird of Disaster was developed at The Kitchen’s 2003 summer workshop. The speaking characters are real-time “video puppets,” controlled with Mark Coniglio’s Isadora software. The piece was actually performed, like they say, in front of a live studio audience (you can hear them in the background).

At the start of the Afghan War, I heard the title's classic Cold-War motto resurrected by Texas Congressman Dick Armey. Oddly enough, it made me think of the Lewis Carroll poem "The Voice of the Lobster," in which the Panther and the Owl sit down to negotiate an agreement. The story just seems to have a timely ring about it.

My cousins used to play this odd little game; they were about five and three years old at the time. The older one would pick up the remote control to the TV, point it at her sister, and say “Turn you off”–she’d obligingly fall to the ground and play dead. Then the remote changed hands, they’d change places, and the game would begin all over again. It was carried out with the solemn gravity of an execution by firing squad. This short is a grown-up version of the same game, played with...
